I had the idea to try and remake the first level from Crash 2, but I've run into a few issues.

-I need the 3D movement object, but I can't use it because of DC DLC. If someone who has DC DLC could help me remove it, that would help.
-I was planning on turning the camera to face sideways, and modify the controls to work with that. I can't figure out how to make the camera do that, so for the time being, I'll just keep the normal camera. If someone knows how to turn cameras past their boundaries, help would be appreciated.
-I'm not great with the backgrounds, (trees, flowers) but I'm not all that concerned with that for the time being.

I've started with the mechanics, like the slide, spin, and belly flop. I've also drawn up blueprints for the crates, and they should work fine, except for the fact that I can't sticker them until the game is patched because I'm on PS3. If you can help me out with any of the above issues, send me a friend request at PSN name Dietpepsi97 or leave a comment here telling me how you can help.

To reiterate, here are the things I absolutely need:
-Someone who has DC level pack DLC
-Someone who has experience with 3D cameras, or has one that fits the description

I'll post updates when I make progress with this, and I'd like to say that I have plans for a Spyro level either after this or if this doesn't work out.

Edit: I'll be online at about 3:00 p.m. EDT

I'm not able to help, but you'll definitely have an audience if you follow through with this.

Across all of the Youtube recordings of my Donkey Kong level in the beta, everyone in the comments section seems to want Crash Bandicoot instead.

Oh yeah, you'll also need to specify if you're on PS3 or PS4 for people to be able to join you and help. I think that stickering glitch only happens on PS3 though, so it's probably safe to assume you're on PS3.

That's right. At least now I know I don't have to reinstall. It'll be a pain to create the crates without stickers, so I'll just use different materials as placeholders for now. Are you saying that the PS3 and PS4 versions can't connect?
Yeah. PS3 and PS4 versions of the game can't play together, sadly. You could still pass a level back and forth between one another and work on it one-at-a-time, but you can't physically play the game together.


Also, can you send me a link to the youtube video you mentioned? It sounds interesting.

Here's one of 'em:

EDIT: What happened in here? The posts all got jumbled and out of order lol. I didn't double post or anything.

Looks good! The only thing is that he walks a bit slow for DK.

Here's my Alpha v0.001 of the mechanics.

I've been working on this for 4 hours, so I'm done for today. I'll publish this area so anyone can test the physics.

If you end up making a good 3D movement system, let me know. I really need one. They don't turn exactly perfect, ever. At least not any way that I know how to get them to work. I've had mine bug out, and am not sure that it's possible to make a really good one until the game is patched.

Also, if done right, you can expect a heart and a yay from me. You're doing awesome already! If you're on Ps4 add me.

Thanks! I'm getting A PS4 around Christmas, as well as a copy of LBP3 for that, too. I'll add you when I get it.

I'm going to go on a mini hiatus until the next patch comes out. The sticker problem is really irritating me. I'm going to start work on Spyro's top-down controls.
